Contrary to previous reports — see below — Spurs draft pick Deshaun Thomas has reportedly switched gears and will now play his rookie professional season in France. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Thomas recently taken 58th overall by the Spurs will play for…well he isn’t quite sure. But it apparently won’t be Spain’s Estudiantes as was reported yesterday by Sportando.net. Thomas told the Dispatch that he made the decision to play overseas rather than shoot for the Spurs’ 15th roster spot for economic reasons.
